A new device that doubles as an earphone and a microphone for mobile phone users by detecting air vibrations inside the ear is the new trend in sound technology. Dubbed "e-Mimi-kun" (good ear boy), the product was developed by Japanese company NS-ELEX Co and will allow people to "speak" with their ears.
